How the color is made: To make Wine Red mix Vivid Pink with Black to create a dark hue that ignites a sense of apprehension.

History: Wine Red was traditionally a color associated with the church and with the coats of British soldiers which dates back to the Tudor era. King Henry VIII’s guards often wore Wine Red uniforms during this time.

Wine Red can also look wonderful when incorporated into a suede high-heel ankle boot.
